Toolkit launch: Engaging with Evidence

Following an immersive capability building pilot with the Department of Levelling Up, Housing and Communities (DLUHC) in partnership with CAPE, Nesta is excited to launch their Engaging with Evidence Toolkit – a practical resource to strengthen capabilities for evidence use and expert engagement. 

Bringing together insights from the pilot and across the sector on what we know helps to strengthen capabilities for evidence-informed decision-making in practice, the toolkit will help decision-makers learn about what evidence and expertise can be mobilised towards the right purposes at the right time. Through a combination of theory, case studies and interactive activities, it is a practical, easy-to-use resource for governments, knowledge intermediaries, and others interested in advancing capabilities for evidence use and expert engagement.

Join them for the launch on Tuesday 6 December 12:00 – 13:30, as they bring together evidence experts and practitioners from across the research-policy nexus to discuss the challenges and opportunities for strengthening capabilities for evidence use and expert engagement for policy development. 

Open to all interested.
